We love EDK! It's been a favorite for many years and we're so happy it seems to have survived the pandemic. Our food was excellent...especially the corn chowder. Our only negative was that it took a long time to even be acknowledged, after being seated. The service improved rapidly upon actually being greeted and, to be fair, it was very busy. Of course, we'll return, again and again...as I said, a favorite.
We went to for lunch and had the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and cornbread and the tostada special. Both dishes were really good. Alex our server was the best! Great servic and checked on us often. We always go here when we are in town. Our favorite restaurant in Sonoma! They are being super careful with the social distancing and we felt safe dining here.
We ordered the pork chop but they brought something else. We sent it back and within 5 minutes they brought us a pork chop obviously something that was returned. The pork chop was dry and tough. Disappointing. My husband had the fish (cod)it was very good.
Thank you Giorgio for the amazing recommendations and outstanding service! Came to celebrate and early Mother’s Day/ early bday! Will definitely be returning. Cocktails were delicious
Always great food! We had a great waiter and loved the outdoor patio dining.
Great service and food!!
The food was very good. Our server was excellent. The man at the front desk who sat us however was snarky and rude. He should be replaced. EDK is a wonderful spot but there are many choices in Sonoma and beginning lunch feeling insulted is not good business.
Best burger in Sonoma! Chef Armando provides consistently good food with a creative menu.
It was...OK. Not bad, but not great, and nowhere we'd choose to go again.
Overall the food was flavorful, but the kitchen seems to have a tendency to overdo things. The waygu carpaccio was doused in arugula slathered with a bit too much dressing. The crispy rock cod was excellent, really excellent, but suffered from being dumped into a bowl with too much stuff...greens, mashed potatoes. The roasted maitake mushrooms were over-roasted, so that the tops were crispy like potato chips.
The wines were good and the service was cheery, but a little inattentive, not because of the waiter but because he was saddles with a table of 11 very demanding guests seated right next to us.
The large table was also very LOUD, which was great for them...truly some inspired conversations...but as this was supposed to be a romantic birthday dinner for my wife I think the restaurant might have had the foresight to seat us somewhere else.
Please treat chives as an item that should be mentioned in an item’s description.
Three of our six items had chives. No mention of them at all for any of the items.
And we specifically requested no chives.
Otherwise, tasty. Just sad you kept having to redo the items.
Our party of 4 were seated outside. Delicious food, great wait staff, highly recommend!
Food was amazing and service was impeccable! Danny went above and beyond and made our dining experience perfect!
We have been to El Dorado twice and both times the service was excellent and the food was consistently good. We had the mussels dish and it was delicious. Also an excellent collection of wines. Keep up the good work El Dorado.
Great night out with family. Special evening! We shared many great appetizers and we all ordered fun drinks. Our server was very helpful and we had plenty of delicious food. We liked tasting many different items since we ad not been out in months. :)
Beautiful food, drinks, and ambience! I'll definitely return!
Great server. Everyone was very accommodating with whatever we requested.
It was amazing! we sat outside on the patio it was beautiful. There were trees and plants everywhere like you were sitting in a garden and there were white twinkly lights on the trees making dinner beyond pleasant. very relaxing. The service was outstanding as well, our waiter was friendly, attentive and knew the menu verbatim. Great service. The food was amazing also. When our food came we all had to take pictures because it too, was like a work of art. Everything we ordered was phenomenal I had the veggie risotto, my boyfriend ordered the pork chop, his mother ordered the rock cod and his father ordered the filet mignon. Everything was outstanding!
Decided to take my grandma here and was absolutely blown away with the service, ambiance, food, and drinks!!! But the shining star at the El Dorado Kitchen HANDS DOWN is the waiter Giorgio!! He was out going, professional in a upscale New York Italian restaurant type of way, throwing compliments and jokes like Steph draining 3s....just when you think how’s he going to top that you hear him serenade a table for their birthday.
If you are reading this - STOP - and book a dinner at El Dorado kitchen to experience food and customer service that will exceed expectations!!
The food was not as we had anticipated based upon reviews. Salmon was raw in the center. The paella was dry.
This restaurant has it all - atmosphere, service, and great food. It is a comfortable respite from the often frantic pace of Sonoma places to eat.
Great dining experience. We needed a place that implemented safe distancing protocols but also could accommodate a bigger group. EDK fit the bill perfectly! The staff was personable and attentive and the food was wonderful. The menu 100% satisfied everyone in our group and we even had dessert even though we were pretty full from appetizers, drinks and our entrees! Parking on the street was easy as well and we had a late reservation but the staff never made us feel rushed.
Their outside set up in adorable, food was delicious, cocktails were good, and server was outstanding.
We had a lovely experience eating outdoors in the courtyard adjacent to the main dining room. We were seated promptly at the reserved time for lunch (11:30 a.m.). Our waiter was very knowledgeable about food and drinks and came promptly to take our orders. My order of chilaquiles included a very large serving eggs along with salsa roja, crispy tortillas, cotija cheese, and a sliced half avocado. The presentation was very attractive, however, while I really enjoy spicy food, this dish was dominated by hot sauce so I didn't enjoy the flavors of the other ingredients. My wife had the Tavern Ham and Gruyere Omelette. It was a very large serving and was tasty, but it didn't stand out from other omelettes she's had in the past. We would certainly come back in the future to try other offerings from the menu.
Great food and service. The patio is cute- but our table was next to huge white heater duct and the table was too small for 4 of us.
Wonderful food with friendly service!
Visiting Sonoma for the first time and the entire staff at EDK made us feel right at home. Amazing food and great vibes.
We discovered EDK in 2007 before moving to Sonoma, and now as locals we consider it one of the top 2 'special places' to dine in the Valley.
the paella is real. fantastic. nice cocktails. beautiful setting. loved it
Had a wonderful lunch on your beautiful backyard patio. Service, food, ambiance - everything was great.
Wonderful food. Great venue. Outdoor seating was a bit tight. Service was earnest but over eager. Every "thank you" resulted in a "my pleasure.". Every request resulted in an "of course, sir.". Not a bad thing, just a bit rote and it did not come off as sincere. Give it time!
A very pleasant experience. Considering the adjustments needed for "social distancing" the ambiance was impacted negatively.
Great place on Sonoma Square. Nice outdoor patio seating with fantastic food and helpful waiters!
we are regulars. EDK has helped preserve our sanity during the era of Covid constraints.
Very average food and ambiance.
All of our dishes were tasty and very well priced. We have dined on several other occasions and have never had a bad meal. Keep up the good work!
We had a wonderful time at EDK (as the locals say!) The food was delicious and there were quite a number of options to accommodate my friend with Celiac. Our server Fernando was incredible. His energy was contagious and his care and concern over our dietary restrictions was top notch. Highly recommend eating here!
An excellent choice for outdoor brunch. Remains a go to choice for reliable dining. Not the finest of fine dining but reliable and especially on the rear patio pleasant.
Would not recommend the tables on the street or sidewalk.
We had a fantastic time! Great food, great staff and great atmosphere! Love this place!
After all these years, this was our first time to "EDK" and it was fantastic. Very pleasant surrounding, nice variety on the menu and an excellent staff to keep the food and drink coming. Special shout out to Rosie for her honest and helpful opinions and professional service. The corn cold chowder soup appetizer was memorable and always happy to see paella on ANY menu. The fried chicken was also a standout. Looking forward to making this spot a regular.
